    CHARLOTTE
 
     A long history and walking through the center of the city is like walking back in the 18-th century. The Historic Latta Plantation, Historic Rosedale or just an easy stroll through one of Charlotte's beautiful historic neighborhoods are highlights that give you an impression of what life in the Old South was like.
       For people interested in modern stuff, head for the Discovery Place, one of the nation's top hands-on science museums with a Planetarium and Omnimax Theatre. Recent Omnimax treats have included "Michael Jordan...to the Max".
       Nightlife in Charlotte can be very exciting too. Take a stroll down Tryon Street or a trolley tour through the South End district end you can get a taste of all the restaurants and bars that are on offer.
      The Carolinas’ largest metropolis filled with historic sites, museums, restaurants, and retail shopping centers. General Cornwallis occupied the town for a short time and gold was discovered here in 1799.  It was chiefly agricultural, but with abundant water power for electricity from the Catawba River the town has seen rapid growth.  Today Charlotte is among the largest banking centers in the country.
